Issues

Campaign themes

2010

Beyer's campaign website highlighted the following issues:

  • Jobs: "My first priority as your state senator will be to focus on bringing jobs back to Oregon. Without profitable businesses and their workers making an income, there just won’t be the tax revenue necessary to support our children’s education or other vital services. I have always believed the best social service is a well-paying job...We can and must get more efficient and more accountable."
  • Education: "It’s time to realistically prioritize public services. My top priority is education. We owe it to Oregon’s youth to provide them with the knowledge and skills to be successful. But, beyond this social commitment, we must realize our state economy is dependent on this emerging workforce."
  • Healthcare: "As a civilized society, we also need to find ways to care for those among us who can’t care for themselves, such as the elderly and disabled. And we must work to assure everyone has reasonable access to affordable health care. While the national health care legislation will address access over time, it does not address cost control. As member of a hospital board for 10 years, I firmly believe we can do a better job of controlling cost."
